The Gospels - Lesson 1 - Transcript

The Gospels - Lesson 1 - Transcript

Ratings: (0)|Views: 202|Likes:

The first four books of the New Testament — Matthew, Mark, Luke and John — are commonly known as "the Gospels." These books explain the life and teachings of Jesus, and are the basis for most of the distinctive doctrines of Christianity. But how are Christians to interpret and apply these books today? Why do we have four different accounts of Jesus' life and teachings? Did these books intend to describe true history? How relevant are the viewpoints of these books in the modern world? The Gospels is the first series in the course The Gospels & Acts. Series Goals * Introduce viewers to the similarities and differences between the four gospels. * Summarize the structure, content, original meaning and modern application of Matthew, Mark, Luke and John.

Founded in 1997, Third Millennium Ministries is a nonprofit Christian organization dedicated to providing
Biblical Education. For the World. For Free.
 In response to the growing global need for sound, biblically-based Christian leadership training, we are building a user-friendly, donor-supported, multimedia seminary curriculum in five major languages (English, Spanish, Russian, Mandarin Chinese, and Arabic) and distributing it freely to those who need it most, primarily Christian leaders who have no access to, or cannot afford, traditional education. All lessons are written, designed, and produced in-house, and are similar in style and quality to those on the History Channel
©
. This unparalleled, cost-effective method for training Christian leaders has proven to be very effective throughout the world. We have won Telly Awards for outstanding video production in Education and Use of Animation, and our curriculum is currently used in more than 150 countries. Third Millennium materials take the form of DVD, print, Internet streaming, satellite television transmission, and radio and television broadcasts. For more information about our ministry and to learn how you can get involved,  please visit http://thirdmill.org.
